Life Studio Plus External Hard Drive

Now that I've entered the digital age (very late, I may add) I have tons and tons of pictures just sitting there on my computer, unorganized.  Enter... Mobile Life Studio Plus - External Hard Drive!



This baby is great for organizing all my pictures, but it also is great at backing up  documents, music, and so much more.

The Hitachi Life Studio Mobile Plus External hard drive is available in 250 GB, 300 GB, and 500 GB. It also includes an auto-sync 4 GB USB key.  (My daughter has already grabbed it twice!  She loves it!)

I love that it is simply a plug and go type application.  I am so not computer savvy and I set this up all by myself!
 
The features include:

  • Organization and Sharing: First drive that automatically pulls together and organizes photos, videos, music and documents from your computer, connected USB devices or social media outlets; making content easier to access, view and share. Interact with photos on Facebook™, Flickr™ and Picasa™ without leaving the app.
  • 3D Navigation: The only external drive that displays files on a stunning 3D wall, eliminating the need to dig through folders and files to find them.
  • Backup Redefined: Offers both local and online cloud backup within one interface – no more downloading and installing two separate programs. Online content is stored in its natural format, making files available from any Internet browser.
  • Access to Favorite Premium Content: For the first time within an external drive, users can search, filter, watch or subscribe to millions of titles from online content providers. Catch the latest news, TV shows and music videos, or play online games, from within the LifeStudio app.
  • Grab n’ Go Flexibility: First in the industry to feature an integrated USB key. Drag content onto the key for use on the go, making it easier to collaborate on team projects, share photos with friends and family, or transport documents between home and work. Modified content syncs with the drive when the key is docked.

I think my favorite feature is the way I can view my photos.  It's like a wall of thumbnails that make it much easier to view and to organize my photos, music files, etc.  If someone as computer illiterate as I am can use this, think how wonderful it will be for you!  I  don't know how I managed to find anything before now that I have the Life Studio Plus.  I also feel a little more secure knowing that those all important photos and documents are backed up onto this hard drive.  That way if something horrible happens to my computer, my images and documents are safe!

So, you want one for yourself now, don't you?  Well, hold on to your hats because one of you lucky readers will win your very own Hitachi Life Studio Plus External Hard Drive, valued at $139.99!
